ESET Earns Record-Breaking 58th VB100 Award

Quote:
DELHI – October 7, 2009 – ESET, the leader in proactive threat protection, today announced that it has captured a record 58th VB100 award from Virus Bulletin, the widely-respected independent comparative testing group. October's report focused on the Windows Server 2008 platform. 11 of the 26 entries were awarded the VB100 designation.

Virus Bulletin introduced its first VB100 award in 1998, and conducts several comparatives every year, rotating its platforms between Linux, Windows, Windows servers and Novell Netware. In order to display the VB100 logo, an antivirus product must meet two criteria: (1) Demonstrate it detects all "In-the-Wild" viruses during both on-demand and on-access scanning; and, (2) Generate no false positives when scanning a set of clean files. Since the inception of VB100 awards in 1998, ESET's antivirus products continue to boast a success rate of over 96 percent - the industry's highest. Most antivirus vendors have success ratios in the 50 – 75 percent range.

"ESET showed some excellent detection rates, with commendably even scores across the trojans and the reactive parts of the RAP set indicating steady handling of new samples, and a splendid showing in the proactive set making for a very high overall average," said John Hawes, Virus Bulletin. "With no false positives ESET is the worthy winner of yet another VB100 award, thus maintaining NOD32's position as the product with the largest number of VB100 awards."

I actually used ESET since v2 and have a legit, good license but recently stopped using it. One day when I had ESET running, fully updated, check for updates every hour ON and start-up scan ON, I was going to terminate firefox which wasent responding so I went to task manager, turns out I had a processes called "cmd.exe" using 99% of my CPU. A quick scan with malwarebytes shown a few Trojans, and after that I was DONE with eset. Re-installed windows and now I got Kaspersky Internet security 2010 with 1 year valid license key.

So, ESET fails you when you least expect it.
Oh, and the trojan cmd.exe was actually downloaded through a USB worm, which ESET has been known for letting through.

Tough stuff! I dropped using ESS(their Smart Security) when it also let like 5 viruses and 2 trojans, and 1 keylogger in through a file that was on a USB. And the wird thing is that i got the usb from my friend, who was also using Eset... So im just staying with MSE and malwarebytes - and watching what i download

Yes, and this isent the first time ESET has failed me. It did a year or two back because of the conflicker worm (It said it blocked it...Yeah right) and then I had tones of trojans running in the background. I installed avira after that and it done some quick scan after I installed it and it found a few trojans, Im pretty sure Malwarebytes found over 200 infections.

There are many things that an anti virus will not pick up. So there's no need to sweat about it. For example, on a clean pc, if you install mywebsearch toolbar, many AV like eset and mse will not detect it. However, malwarebytes shows that it detected around 256 infections.

I use ESS, Vipre AV and Iobit 360.
However, I have snoozed Vipre and disabled real-time protection.
No performance issue so far.

Eset is one of the best security solutions out there, but even it can do the job on it's own, so it is recommended to also have installed an antispyware software

I use SUPERAntiSpyware with Nod32.AV.v4 for a very long time and never had a problem with my pc, hope this will not change soon.
